A September 30, 1903 afternoon panoramic view, shot by H.J Miles, of people at the north end of Ocean Beach located near the Cliff House on San Francisco's western shore. The film is a production of the American Mutoscope & Biograph Company. If some of these scenes look familiar, it is because this is the full video from which 2 short clips, "Cliff House from Ocean Beach" and "Crowds at Ocean Beach," housed at archive.org, were taken.

RSPB Strumpshaw Fen 25-11-2017 A mass aerial stunt - thousands of birds all swooping and diving in unison. It's completely breathtaking to witness. We think that starlings do it for many reasons. Grouping together offers safety in numbers – predators such as peregrine falcons find it hard to target one bird in the middle of a hypnotising flock of thousands. They also gather to keep warm at night and to exchange information, such as good feeding areas. They gather over their roosting site, and...

Thanks for the reactions to my recent videos of the wildlife in my garden at night. I'll post just one more as I don't want to bore you! The wildlife cafe was open in my garden again last night.
